Call to Worship
John 14:22-28
22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, 
why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”
23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. 
My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make 
our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not 
obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they 
belong to the Father who sent me.
25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate,
the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will 
teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have 
said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do
not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be
troubled and do not be afraid.
28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to 
you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the 
Father, for the Father is greater than I.
